There are a lot of herbivores in the grassland Savannah. It is ok because there is a lot of long wavy grass. Only few trees cover the land. Here are some of the animals that are herbivores: Giraffes, African Elephants, zebras and there are even more.
There are many different types of carnivores in the grassland Savannah.
There are Lions, Hyenas and even cheetahs! Carnivores mean they eat only meat no fruits no vegetables. Here is some pictures of the Animals that are carnivores.
They have to eat rough and dry plants because they are very coarse
They don’t have to adapt to too much because they eat both plants and animals. They eat meat in the winter and eat plants in the summer
They also don’t have to adapt to many things because they can mostly get meat on any season. If one species went extinct they could slowly die out from starvation
One decomposer in the savannah is the hyena. Hyenas and other decomposers play important roles in their environment. Hyenas and other decomposers take the dead bodies of other organisms and put them back into the environment. They eat the dead bodies of other animals. They also help break down carcass's. Some other decomposers in the savannah are beetles, termites, and millipedes.

Environment in this biome.
Humans aren't to bad to grassland
Savannas but when tourist come
They force the animals to be seen and the animals get scared by all the flashes of the cameras and the safari cars make noise.
The weather patterns impact the environment and the organisms in it in many ways. The dry winter season impacts the living organisms because they would feel like they are stuck in an enclosed area. The animals and plants could also get overheated. When plants get overheat the plants may not do to well. The humidity can also slightly confuse animals.
Abiotic factors often help plants in the Savannah. The sunlight helps the plants grow by shining down on it. The summer climate is also good for the plants because it is wet. The water helps these plants grow. The soil is also very helpful. It is porus. Porus means it is full of pores. The soil also has a rapid drainage of water.
The plants in the savannah have to go through many special adaptions. They have to adapt to the dry and humid winter weather. They have to withstand not having to much water and because of that most of the grass is dry and coarse. The grass will mainly grow on flat areas. Plants cannot grow in certain places of the savannah because it is to dry or many other reasons. So you will mostly see that the plants grow in little patches. The trees have to adapt to the low rainfall but most don’t make it.
